Exclusive Interview of Vincent D'Onofrio

You grew up in Brooklyn, just across from Staten Island. The scenario for New York Little did he recalled memories?
Vincent D'Onofrio: Yes, in some way ... I remember cross the kind of people: small crooks, the guy from New York more or less involved in the mafia. Je les observais de loin. I watch them from afar. As the character of Parma Tazzo, the way it manages, moves, talks, looks, his image came to me like that. As a matter of course.

It is a fantasy player to become a sponsor of the mafia?
The sponsor is one of the mythical characters. But for me, among Tazzo is a mafia different from those we have seen so far, rather bizarre, vulnerable, childlike, suffering from a major inferiority complex. Little New York is a fairly ambitious first film which tells the same story viewed from three perspectives - those of the three main characters - filmed in three different ways. It is far from the Godfather or Once Upon a Time in America ... But for an actor, the important thing is not to stick a label.

The good cop from New York, criminal section, for example ...
It's nice to go from time to time on the other side of the barrier. We realize that the distance between a good cop for a good crook may not be so great I love my television character, job is easy, the series is very good, the team is brilliant and the arrival of Jeff Goldblum in the season 9, in place of Chris North (Mr. Big from Sex and the city), it will bring freshness. But after eight years in the guise of Robert Goren, I need to do other things. Otherwise I become sad (laughs).

How is Jeff Goldblum?
It is great, excellent, interesting. His character is as strange as mine and it will gradually take a growing place in the series, which will leave me more time to film. And yet I am rather critical. You know, this series is just mine ...

How?
I worked so hard to enforce my character! wanted both uncomfortable for the actors as for the producers or the viewers. . I wanted hard, intelligent, inaccessible, inflexible. It was not easy to convince.

You regret?
No way! However I regret the proliferation of crime series. The genre was born there thirty-five years with Columbo. Peter Falk was able to build a magnificent character, concentrated and intense. Few players know yet how or when they are pale copies in small plots. I do not know how long this will last yet, but I think that the genre is almost dead.
